Gotta say, i'm really shocked how much i'm enjoying it.

It handles really well, and bulding is quite easy. its a bit boaring when compared to its PC counterpart, but they say we will get updates to change this.

As a free form bulding game its great, i'm just not sure how the combat is going to handle once adventure mode is introduced.

I've heard so much about the PC version and would love to check that out on the iPad. Playing too much other stuff at the moment. I'll wait until the iPad version catches up to the PC. I really wish they would release a controler for the iPad though.

I haven't played Minecraft, but did pick up Junk Jack which is similar. I can say without a doubt it's been worth every penny. It's probably in my top 5 favorite iPad apps, which says alot. The developer is also constantly updating it too.

Here's some current features:

* tint cloth blocks with 15 color dyes
* underground biomes with unique graphic style and monsters.
* placeable and throwable explosives that can destroy buildings, landscapes and monsters!
* critters and enemies to fight (more than 45 different mobs!)
* a fully featured lighting system together with many different sources of light and global lighting
* 3 slots for infinite worlds that you can generate and explore, every world is different from any other!
* procedural generation which creates beautiful worlds with plants, caves, different biomes all around the world
* a double layered world which allows to customize background and foreground of your creations
* many ores and shiny gems to help your adventure
* many hidden containers full of treasures
